What’s more frightening than Kevin Smith‘s upcoming horror movie Red State? His mediocre attempts at self-deprecating humor. Remember when he complained about being too fat for that airplane, you guys? Cause I forgot all about it a long time ago.

However, I’m gonna cut the director some slack, cause he’s probably out of breath from (lightly) exercising, getting in shape to run around the country and plug his new movie into any theater that’ll screen it. Not-so-Silent Bob’s intro notwithstanding, the teaser itself is very tense and effective. You can see a few bits of John Goodman the way he looks in my “Roseanne” nightmares – stern and viewed through a shaky lens. The film also stars Kevin Pollack and Stephen Root.

The Red State tour starts March 5th. (Cinema Blend, Coopersdell.com)

Stephen Root Is An FBI Cooperator http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/stephen-root-is-an-fbi-cooperator/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/stephen-root-is-an-fbi-cooperator/#comments Thu, 24 Feb 2011 17:04:26 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29547 Stephen Root should be in more movies, so this is good news.

Character actor Stephen Root (Red State) has a way of turning up in unlikely places, especially now that he’s escaped from the comedy ghetto of his earlier work. Now, he’s been added to the already-in-production J. Edgar from drama ghetto denizen Clint Eastwood.

He’s joining a pretty impressive cast, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the titular role of FBI head J. Edgar (Hoover), The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer as J. Edgar‘s “companion” Clyde Tolson, and Judi Dench as J. Edgar’s mother.

All right-thinking film fans should be excited about this, because Stephen Root is one of the most fascinating people to watch in movies today. And if you’re skeptical about his ability to be in serious dramas, see his recent work in No Country For Old Men and the TV series”Justified.” (via The Playlist)

Dermot Mulroney and Stephen Root Circle Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dermot-mulroney-and-stephen-root-circle-kevin-smiths-red-state/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dermot-mulroney-and-stephen-root-circle-kevin-smiths-red-state/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Kevin Smith is rounding out Red State's cast of "well-known unknowns." He's already cast Michael Parks (who? Oh yeah. That guy.) to play the sadistic minister at the center of the story. Now there's news that a few other folks who you recognize from someplace may join the cast. Dermot Mulroney (About Schmidt), Stephen Root (Office Space), Kyle Gallner (Nightmare On Elm Street remake), Melissa Leo ("Treme"), and Michael Angarano (Gentleman Broncos) are contemplating taking roles in the horror film. I'm not sure all these people count as unknowns. Dermot Mulroney and Stephen Root are pretty well-accomplished. Root starred on a popular sitcom for five years, and has appeared in over 150 projects. And some would argue that Dermot Mulroney is the most famous Dermot in America, nay, on the Planet Earth. (The Wrap)
